The Tesla drone system was unable to distinguish a boy wearing an orange T-shirt from a road cone of the same color

Canal Tesla Brasil published a video showing the whole process of an incident when a car tried to recognize a person. At first, both objects — a boy and a cone — were displayed on the screen of the multimedia system. Then for some time the cone disappeared and only the child remained on the display, but in the end the autopilot decided that it was the road cone in front of him.

Interestingly, last year, the owner of the Tesla Model S managed to trick the autopilot of an electric car with an orange. He fixed the fruit on the steering wheel, due to which the automatic control system turned on, on which the man drove about 45 kilometers. Recall that a prerequisite for the operation of this system is that the driver must constantly keep his hands on the steering wheel.
